I am dedicated to improving the outcomes of my Client Advocees during their stays in acute care facilities for surgery or treatment. By providing a new level of patient directed advocacy, I help patients to better exercise their own autonomy throughout their journey through illness.
What do you gain by having a personal advocate as a part of your health care team?
I can be your eyes when you can not see.
I can be your ears when you can not hear.
I can be your voice when you can not speak.
Most importantly, I can help you learn to speak for yourself,
and better understand what you are being told.
I provide critical oversight of your acute care providers that is specifically intended to identify and prevent potential errors before they become life threatening.I am committed to raising the quality of care you recieve and in doing so hope to raise that same quality for every patient that follows.
